  • Passing of Delegate Jim Scott

    Fairfax, VA – Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement on the passing of former Virginia Delegate Jim Scott:

    “Virginia has lost a quiet, gentle but forceful advocate for all who feel powerless. Jim Scott was a voice for civil rights, women’s rights and LGBT rights because he believed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States meant what they said. 

    Unusual for a politician, Jim was self-effacing. A natural mentor, he promoted talent and sought to bestow credit on others. He advanced the careers of myriad public officials. His generosity of spirit benefited causes throughout our Virginia Commonwealth. And most of that generosity was unheralded. 

    He championed affordable housing, the homeless, the Fairfax Fair, telework, the environment, among scores of causes. In doing so he elevated politics and ennobled public service as a calling.

    Jim was a loving and devoted husband to his beloved wife Nancy and a proud Dad to two extraordinary and accomplished daughters. He was a devout Methodist, and passionate sports fan‎ for North Carolina and the Washington Nationals. 

    It will be difficult to re-imagine the NOVA community without his towering presence and wise guidance. And his absence will be a void for those of us privileged to know him.”
